    We've used the services of Tony Cilea when we purchased both of our homes. We have nothing but good things to say! As a first time home buyer he was there to help us through all of our questions. We came away satisfied and happy with our choice! Great work!

    Tony and his team saved what seemed like an unsalvageable situation. Just weeks away from closing on our home, we discovered that the lender we'd chosen was not going to hit our closing date. Our realtor recommended Tony: "If anyone can fix this, Tony can." She was right. In just 9 business days, Tony and his team managed to do what a large bank could not, and got us to our closing with a mortgage in hand. Tony was professional, exceptionally competent, and a delight to work with. He's Superman!

    Tony was terrific to work with. He guided us through the mortgage process on a weekly and sometimes daily basis, all the way through to closing. He gave good guidance, support and patience throughout. Very professional experience. I'd work with Tony again in the future without hesitation.

    Tony is great. When I started searching for homes four months ago, I contacted Guaranteed Rate to see what I price range I could afford. A short while later, I'm in a home with a great interest rate and low monthly payments. All of this happened much faster than I had ever dreamed, and a lot of that is due to Tony and his supporting staff. Would recommend.

    Tony is terrific to work with, and went the extra mile to get us the best rate available. He responded quickly to all of our questions, and made the whole, complicated, process much easier. And he is incredibly nice to boot! We would not hesitate to recommend Tony and his team.
